BCCI not in favour of Indo-Pak series: Sources
New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is not in favour of resuming cricketing ties with Pakistan in near future in view of the security situations in Pakistan after the death of dreaded terrorist Osama bin Laden a few days back.
Sources from the BCCI claimed that they were not in favour of the India-Pakistan series as the security situation in Pakistan is far from normal.
Earlier, as a follow up to the talks between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani during the ODI World Cup, India had decided in-principle to resume bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan.
Before the World Cup semi final match at Mohali on March 30, India last played against Pakistan at an Asia Cup match in June 2010 at Dambula in Sri Lanka.
The last bilateral cricket series between India and Pakistan was held in 2007-2008 when the Pakistani team had visited India.
No international cricket team has visited Pakistan to play any match after the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team on March 3, 2009, when six members of the visiting team were injured. Six Pakistani policemen and two civilians were also killed in the incident.
